የጅምላ ረሃብ ስጋት | ሰዎች በተኙበት እየሞቱ ነው

እኛ በምንናገርበት ጊዜ በየቀኑ ህዝቡ እየሞተ ስለሆነ የሰብአዊ ርዳታን በፍጥነት ለማሳደግ – በጣም አስቸኳይ ፍላጎት አለ – በእንግሊዝኛ ምን ተጨማሪ ቃላት መጠቀም እንዳለብኝ አላውቅም።

There is an extreme urgent need — I don’t know what more words in English to use — to rapidly scale up the humanitarian response because the population is dying every day as we speak,” Source/ምንጭ

“Hundreds of thousands might starve to death” in Ethiopia’s Tigrayregion, according to a government official quoted in a leaked copy of notes taken at a meeting of humanitarian workers.

Communication with much of the region remains difficult as phone lines and the internet have been cut making the verification of reports hard.

According to the leaked notes taken by a participant at an ECC meeting on 8 January, an official from the interim administration of the central part of Tigray”said that the situation [on] the ground is dire”.

“Food and non-food items or other livelihoods are either looted or destroyed. He also added that if urgent emergency assistance is not mobilised hundreds of thousands might starve to death.”

“People are dying because of starvation. In Adwa people are dying while they are sleeping,” he was quoted as saying.

Another official, quoted in notes from a meeting on 1 January describing the humanitarian needs, said that “while we were on the road and visit different places, people asked our escort for a single biscuit”.

On Friday, European Union foreign affairs chief Josep Borrell said in a statement that the situation on the ground had gone “well beyond a purely internal ‘law and order’ operation”.

“We receive consistent reports of ethnic-targeted violence, killings, massive looting, rapes, forceful returns of refugees [to Eritrea] and possible war crimes,” he said.
